Speed dating movie 2016
His casting in the film was controversial, since, except for Point Break, he was primarily known for comedies and indie dramas. The summer action film had a fairly large budget and was helmed by novice cinematographer-turned-director Jan de Bont.
Reeves's career choices after Speed were eclectic: despite his successes, Reeves continued to accept supporting roles and appear in experimental films.
His stepfather had convinced Erwin Stoff in advance to be Reeves's manager and agent.
Stoff has remained Reeves's manager, and has co-produced many of his films.
After a few minor roles, Reeves received a sizeable role in the 1986 drama film River's Edge, which depicted how a murder affected a group of teens.
Following this film's critical success, he spent the late 1980s appearing in a number of movies aimed at teenage audiences, including Permanent Record, and the unexpectedly successful 1989 comedy, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, along with its 1991 sequel, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.
His first studio movie appearance was Youngblood (1986) in which he played a Québécois goalie.
He wrote the text for a picture book, Ode to Happiness, illustrated by Alexandra Grant.Of his performance, Roger Lewis, the Sunday Times theatre critic, wrote, "He quite embodied the innocence, the splendid fury, the animal grace of the leaps and bounds, the emotional violence, that form the Prince of Denmark ...He is one of the top three Hamlets I have seen, for a simple reason: he is Hamlet." However, Reeves' choices after A Walk in the Clouds failed with critics and audiences.Reeves' mother then married Robert Miller, a rock music promoter, in 1976; the couple divorced in 1980.She subsequently married her fourth husband, a hairdresser named Jack Bond. Grandparents and nannies babysat Reeves and his sisters, and Reeves grew up primarily in the Yorkville neighbourhood of Toronto.
